Iran: A Dagger Pointed At The Heart Of America

After reading National Review's description of the "existential threat" Iran poses to the US, Andrew Foland decided to illustrate this existential threat in handy graph form.

OK, we resolve this:
Regime change in Iran!
Regime change in the USA!
When do we want it? Now!

Tit regime change for tat regime change! Up against the wall for both governments. Human sacrifice works.

CONTROL YOUR government, BEFORE it puts YOU up against the wall!

Given that the US government has already convinced us of OBL's ability to impose an Islamic caliphate on the Western world, it only stands to reason that Iran -- an actual country, after all! -- could wipe America off the map. Unless decisive action is taken, that is.

America: a mouse among menacing giants. "They hate us because we're little."

No no no, the threat is existential. I mean, it is absolutely essential that the US EXISTS to have countries it can bomb for the profit of the establishment and the vanity and sloth of its entrenched upper middle class thinkers. If not, how is the US going to exist when there's no other countries left on Earth?

“ …how is the US going to exist when there's no other countries left on Earth?”

Well, we could liberate Pluto next, a definite menace to Imperial America.

I had to read twice to realize that when the author of this book on Iran was described as "Reagan administration adviser on national-security matters" it was meant as a compliment.

Oh, and I loved Andrew McCarthy's work in Class, Less Than Zero, and Mannequin. I only hope this piece in National Review, and his position as director the Center for Law & Counterterrorism at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, can put him back on the map.
